Burned Basswood Boot

I had a small chunk of basswood and it was severely checked. Since I couldn’t throw it out a little boot came to fruition. The unfinished carving sat on my shelf for a few months and then came the idea from one of my pyrography reference books to try some burning. I needed something to minimize the scars in the wood and I had no intention of gooping it with putty. So the pattern evolved and it turned out not too badly. Enjoy!
